The only bloggers Achiever Guide

The only bloggers achiever guideThis is the only bloggers achiever guide you will ever need.

I’ve talked about creating your blogging dream.

About visualizing, seeing and feeling it.

I even showed you a very short little affirmation video I created for myself in order to put my subconscious mind to work for me.

But is that it?

Just dream and visualize and recite affirmations?

Of course not.

All that is a really big deal in order to get you on the right track.

But now it’s time to talk about what you have to do to turn your dreams into reality.

Make a Plan

Before you start taking action, you have to figure out what it is want to achieve.

So think of your strategy.

You already know what your dream is.

Now come up with a strategy for making that happen.

Do some research.

Get some coaching.

Figure out what it is that you must do to become the blogging success you want to be.

Come up with a blueprint.

Outline it in detail.

Know exactly what you’re going to do before you try doing it. 

Take Action

Now that you have a plan, it is time to act on it.

Knowing what you have to do is not the same as doing it.

So make sure you have a good blueprint… a precise plan you can execute every single day.

The actions you take must be directly related to achieving your blogging dream.

Don’t fill your action schedule with things that are just kind of helpful.

Only with things that will directly lead to your blogging success.

That’s what I call productive activity.

Doing stuff that won’t make you a blogging success is what I call distracting and busy.

Stop doing distracting and busy stuff that makes you feel like you’re on the right track when it’s only taking you off the rails altogether.

Take meaningful, productive action and you will be able to reach your goals.

Stop Procrastinating

So what are you waiting for?

Well, that’s a good question isn’t it?

In fact, people are always waiting for something.

They need

  • more education
  • a better plan
  • inspiration
  • another training course
  • to read a new ebook
  • look at more articles
  • hear what the gurus are saying
  • see what the competition is doing
  • and on and on and on…

But wait… maybe there’s a webinar coming up on your topic, too.

You may think you need those things, but the truth is, you don’t!

Stop procrastinating.

If you want to be a blogging success, get down to the business of blogging today.

There is nothing more you need to do or know once you have your plan in place.

You simply must take the time to implement it.

That’s all.

Start Small

Even though your dream should be Big, keep your actions small.

There are many detailed things you have to do to be a blogging success.

Don’t try to do them all in one day.

This is why your plan and your strategy are so important.

Because they break your impossible Big Dream down into very manageable, smaller parts.

Each time you work on a certain part of your blogging strategy, give it all your attention.

During that time just forget about your Big Dream.

The only thing you should be focused on is that one tiny little action.

Work on tiny little parts of your business each day.

As long as your overall strategy is sound, then you’re working in the right direction.

It will all come together at some point.

Of course, your strategy must be sound.

If you don’t know if it is, then please get a good coach and work with him/her so that you’re not wasting your time and effort. 

Be Consistent

Nothing is going to happen if you don’t stick to your plan every single day.

Working real hard at being a blogging success for 3 days in a row is great.

But if you follow that with 4 days of slacking off, then you’re really heading nowhere with your business.

You’re just pretending that you’re looking for blogging success.

But what you’re really looking for is more excuses to procrastinate long enough to tell yourself (and maybe the world)… “well, that didn’t work.”

So have a daily schedule.

Stick to it.

Sure, take a day off.

But schedule that day off.

Take control of your business.

One of the great things about working for yourself is that you can take time off anytime you want.

In reality, most of the highly successful bloggers I know take very little time off.

That’s because they love blogging.

And because they’re passionate about their topic.

Most of all, because they know they’ll destroy their momentum by getting lazy or bored or distracted.

Your dream should include things that you love and that you’re passionate about.

That’s what will keep you on target just about every day of every week as you march on toward achieving your Big Dream.

Embrace Failure

Now, things aren’t always going to work out the way you want or expect them to.

You’ll be working on something for 2 weeks and find out that you’re just doing it wrong.

Or that it’s too hard or complicated for you.

Maybe it’s just the wrong thing to be doing.

Don’t get upset.

Don’t feel like a failure.

Just learn from the experience that whatever you were just working on is the wrong thing to be doing.

Then, change direction.

Work on something different.

Put a different spin on your strategy.

That’s not so hard, is it?

Do what you have to do to get past those rough spots.

Don’t get down on yourself.

And don’t take 2 weeks off.

Just find out a better way to do things and start doing it right away.

And be thankful for what your little setback taught you.

By the way, while we’re talking about failure I should remind you of this.

Working with a good coach will certainly reduce the amount of time that you have to “trial-and-error” yourself through endless failures.

A good coach is someone who has already done the things you’re trying to figure out.

And a good coach will save you a ton of time and money spent barking up the wrong trees.

The only bloggers achiever guide

So that’s really it.

If you do each of the things that I just told you, then you are well on your way to becoming a blogging success.

And I call this “the only bloggers achiever guide” because there’s really nothing more to it.

I know a lot of people want to complicate things.

I don’t know why.

Maybe they want to sell their courses or expensive software.

But it really gets down to nothing more than what I’ve just outlined here.

      Hi Moss

      Taking little steps each day are key to achieving great things.

      Bloggers are often so keyed into their Big Dream that they simply don’t focus on doing the little things every day that will help them achieve it.

      Like you said, the plan of action is a must.

      It gives you a blueprint for actions, so that those tiny little things get done methodically and consistently.

      And of course, those are the tiny little things that add up to achieving huge, big dreams.

    Hi Donna,

    Consistency is one of the keys to success. And having a good coach that takes you by the hand and show you how to replicate his success is not an opportunity one should take for granted.

      Hi Jacob

      A good coach can make a world of difference by giving you an exact game plan to follow, and then guide you each step of the way to keep you on track.

      And a big part of staying on track is certainly being consistent.

    Donna I am so with you on the momentum thing and keeping it going. Plus, with ya on the working a bunch because I love it, at 12:08 AM on a Sunday morning. I take little time off because I have fun seeing my success momentum build. Looks nice to see successful results but it feels more fun to be making a difference in people’s lives. May as well stay in the flow.

      Hi Ryan

      Momentum is SO important to establish.

      I like your description of how that happens.

      I was at the Vet the other day and he told me to try to get my 10-year old hound to be more active. As he pointed out… a body at rest tends to stay at rest, a body in motion tends to stay in motion.

      A “dog-centered” paraphrase of Newton’s First Law of Motion.

      Applies for bloggers too 🙂

    Hey Donna Mam,

    Great post as usual. I like the post and especially the points that you have listed.Making a plan is truly necessary, as planning is a most important thing and we cant be able to do anything without a perfect & suitable plan. Making a suitable plan and taking an actions on it will helps a lot to achieve the blogging success. Avoiding procrastinating is really a helpful and effective idea. Start with small actions is really a good tip. If our dream is big, then it is not important that the actions should also be big, whereas we can also achieve a success just by taking tiny and small steps on every single day. Consistent is a crucial thing and it is really important to stick to our plans every single day.
    Failure in life teach us several thing and provide us experience. A failure can also be a good start. Your all the tips are helpful but i truly like an idea of embrace failure, be consistent, taking small actions on plans. As this post will motivate many readers and helps them to achieve a success.

    Really motivational post and thanks for sharing.

      Hi Aadarsh

      Making a plan and implementing it consistently are the backbone to your blogging business.

      Get those 2 things working and you are bound to find success.

      If you need help figuring that out, do your research or… for a shortcut… hire a good coach.

      Either way, you’ve got to do those 2 things to get on the right track to achieving your dream goals.

    Hi Donna,

    Consistency is one of the keys to success. And having a good coach that takes you by the hand and show you how to replicate his success is not an opportunity one should take for granted.

    You’re so right on your point about thinking that one need just yet, another course, another guru’s advice, another training, etc. I have met lots of beginners that have this kind of mindset.

    Start wherever you’re, with whatever you have, and grow with it.

    Thanks, Donna, nice read.

      Hi Shamsudeen,

      Consistency really is critical.

      But bloggers often don’t know WHAT to be consistent about.

      I mean, you can’t be consistently doing too many things or you’ll crash and burn, right?

      That’s where coaching is so important… to know WHAT to do consistently in order to get the results you’re looking for.

    Hi Donna,

    What you have achieved tells the story of your efforts. To become an achiever one need to completely focus on the ultimate goal and do whatever it takes to be the best.

    Be open, be confident, be a learner, be an analyst, be a planner and an executor.

    Develop the every possible business habit to ensure that you will stay on the right path and stay motivated the same time.

    Thanks for sharing!
